We Have To Make Sure Every Point Next Year Is Gold Dust

9:27 pm, Monday, May 20th, 2013 by Dr. Ed Harrison · 66 Comments

Arsenal were a team in form yesterday, and with the 1-0 win against Newcastle they won eight of their last ten league games and drew the other two – but a draw yesterday would have probably been a fair result for Newcastle, but it wasn’t to be.

Alan Pardew – every point will be like gold dust

And the defeat was Newcastle’s 19th of the season, which is far too many for a team like Newcastle.

After everybody comes back fit in pre-season – well apart from Tim Krul and Ryan Taylor – we’ll have a strong squad.

Ryan’s knee was operated on by Dr Steadman at his Colorado Clinic on Saturday – but Ryan is again going to be out most of the season unfortunately, and Tim Krul will be struggling to be fit from his dislocated shoulder, for the first game on August 17th.

The Newcastle manager Alan Pardew will get a chance to bring Newcastle back next season – and we certainly hope he does just that, and we have a season like last season – and that we’ll not be anywhere near the relegation zone.

It’s too dangerous to the health of Newcastle fans to be near that relegation zone. :(

Here’s what Alan said on the official site today:

“We have to deliver better performances and a better commitment to games.” “We have to make sure that every point next year is gold dust, because they are – look what a point would have done for us from this match.”

“We looked a different side in the first half without the pressure on us, and the quality we showed in that half was terrific against a great Arsenal team, who were bang in form.”

“As much as we tried to get through them – and Hatem had some nice moments – ultimately we couldn’t get through them. We lost the game but in honor really.”

We were level on points with Norwich with two games to go and Chris Hughton’s side won both their final two games beating West Brom 4-0 at home and then Manchester City 3-2 away – and they finished 11th on 44 points – and we won one game of the last two and finished 16th on 41 points – so points did matter a lot over the last couple of games.

A win would have seen us just below Norwich in 12th place – but it wasn’t to be.

Newcastle have lacked firepower up front since Demba Ba left in January, and we didn’t replace him, and we are hoping to get two strikers through the door this summer – at least.

That’s also the second time in three seasons that we have lost a striker in January and not replaced him – we need to learn from our past mistakes.

The good news is that we still have to see the best from the top five Frenchmen we signed in January, and they had a fiery baptism at Newcastle since January, but they’ll be all the better for it once next season arrives.

    the lower prem teams are getting a hell of a lot better quality wise and its turned into a very hard league for everyone but the top 5ish teams.
    if we do get some wingers/strikers and hopefully keep collo i think we could break that top 6

    “arsenal were a team in form ”
    pardew said that yesterday- and Ed has echoed that today’
    Am i the only one who thought arsenal were poor in the 1st 45 but then stepped up a notch when the had to ‘- but to say arsenal were on top form , is a bit of an exaggeration, or not ?

    We are stuck with Broken Brain next season the way he is talking.
    Come Christmas when he has ran out of excuses, what will DL do? He wont admit he has made a mistake appointing Broken Brain nor continuing his employment.

    Dear Subway,

    We are losing 2-0 and getting played off the park and you know more about this football stuff than me what sub have you got for that?

    Regards,

    Alan Pardew
    Newcastle United manager (for the time being)

    PS can Mike have a foot long meatball with extra cheese?

    “As much as we tried to get through them – and Hatem had some nice moments – ultimately we couldn’t get through them. We lost the game but in honor really.”

    We haven’t been able to get through most sides this season as we have no link between the midfield and Cisse, we can’t cross the ball, we can’t find a way to play that killer pass or play with any sustained momentum, but being the tactical mastermind I’m sure you already know that Alan…………………….cock

  • 17 Marty-Toon // May 20, 2013 at 9:56 PM

    Points were like gold dust this season too Alan and you got very few of them.Teams with little backing and lower profile players like WBA and Norwich,Fulham,West Ham all played better than us in many ways this season.
    Our boys could barely get a shot on target in games never mind win games 3/4 -0
    Score one and hang on to hope for the best should be your middle name Alan although a long name it’d be

  • 18 HullMag6 // May 20, 2013 at 9:58 PM

    A good strong leader can admit mistakes and learn from them and hold the respect of those they lead and their peers.

    Unfortunately our chosen leader leads with the juniorCollins book of leadership by excuses.

    Come on lads, less of the hating. He’s an idiot but he’s our idiot and we look like we’re stuck with him.

    Best thing we can do is support him.

  • 20 JackButler // May 20, 2013 at 10:00 PM

    When players are fit, on form and playing with confidence everything is easy……………….it’s when you have injuries and players are struggling thats when a manager earns his money…………………..and Pardew has failed at every turn with nothing about to change if he’s allowed to take charge next season

  • 21 yo-yo // May 20, 2013 at 10:03 PM

    If very point is gold dust then every goal against has to be seen as a dog turd in the middle of the living room carpet. Perhaps we do need to play a sweeper system.

    Genuine question. IF next season Pardew ends up doing a Moyes at Everton and has us as an efficient, top half challenging team would we still want him or do we have aspirations of something more? It seems to me that Spurs, much as I hate to say it, have done it right over the years. Numerous managers but their transfers have been solid and they’ve finally got a manger who does exactly what they want.

  • 24 Ulster_Toon // May 20, 2013 at 10:06 PM

    Going to be a long summer, of shoulda choulda wouldas. And transfers that never were.

  • 25 JackButler // May 20, 2013 at 10:09 PM

    SuperShearer

    I no longer have any trust in Pardew and can’t see how he can change my opinion of him. Not once has he stood up and taken any portion of blame, it’s always someone else’s fault.

    We’ve made the same mistakes all season long and he’s done absolutely nothing about it, we are to slow, to static and to predictable in our play and nothing will change in the 89 days before the season kicks off again

  • 26 Toon-Prodigy // May 20, 2013 at 10:10 PM

    SuperShearer,

    The club need to cement a top 8 spot over the coming seasons. Anything more at this point is delusional in my opinion.

    We have five new players bedding in at the moment who will be better for it next season. With a couple of quality strikers brought in (one experienced) we should be fine I think. The Toon will be different next season, we will no longer be playing with Cisse upfront on his own. This striker we sign will be the be all end all for Pardew I think. The signing has to be spot on.

  • 27 NUFCarter // May 20, 2013 at 10:12 PM

    So how come Norwich have already released 10 players and I believe no other team in the prem have released any as if yet? I’d like to see who’s staying and going for NUFC.

  • 28 northernirishtoon // May 20, 2013 at 10:13 PM

    Prodigy

    If he signs Carroll I think we also have to be looking t a Bellamy type layer to compliment Carroll. I really can’t see Carroll and cisse working for some reason

  • 29 Mag.no // May 20, 2013 at 10:15 PM

    Ginger

    I support Pardew during the 90+ mins(he doesn’t even deserve that to be honest), but now he deserves every negative word that is said about him until kickoff next season. He has failed bigtime!

    With Pardew in charge i think my joy for new players will be limited. Can’t see him making the most of any player, not even Carroll.

  • 30 beefman13 // May 20, 2013 at 10:17 PM

    We have had a massive massive kick up the arse this season, yet again they will have to come back to prove they are not crap, Pardew again with his politician talk, maybe the biggest bull.hitter in football, sorry but ive heard enough from the fella this season, even today yet again blaming tiredness of our Europa campaign, looks like he would be overjoyed with an 8th place finish so HE is not in the Europa, save his skin, not bothered about the fans imo, just saving his job, he plays that kind of football.

  • 31 hotdog // May 20, 2013 at 10:20 PM

    If pardew is going down the pan, then this blog is also

    Blah blah blah – it’s the same negative cr*p everytime I log on :-)

  • 32 Toon-Prodigy // May 20, 2013 at 10:21 PM

    Northern Irish,

    I think we have been crying out for a Bellamy type player for a long time. Unfortunetly the board has sold our top strikers and never replaced them this past couple of years. Twice we have struggled in the second half of the season with doing that in January. Ridiculous really. It’s like a vicious cycle.

    I can’t really see a Cisse Carroll partnership working, I have my doubts with this. I think we really need a nippy forward.

    Campbell could be that player, Pardew has already spoke how he would like him to get on the field quite a bit next season. He has hailed him as one of the best finishers at the club. Bit early for him though maybe to be setting the Premiership a light maybe. Probably be coming off the bench last 10-20 minutes

  • 33 hotdog // May 20, 2013 at 10:21 PM

  • 34 Abu Qatada - more popular in Europe (and lasted longer) than Pardew // May 20, 2013 at 10:22 PM

    Well with the players making a pact not to finish as low as 16th again and Pardew realising – every point will be like gold dust, we can all relax because that is true ambition and proper management talk. Potential targets will be on the phone now begging to join the club! How could they not be sold on that type of message coming from the club. On the plus side Pardew hasn’t ruled himself out of the Real Madrid job, he did feel the need to rule himself out of the England job for some reason!

  • 35 Ginger // May 20, 2013 at 10:25 PM

    Mag.no

    Don’t get me wrong, he doesn’t deserve anything. The way he sets us up for defeat, hasn’t fixed our set pieces, cost us points etc is absolutely horrendous for a paid manager to do.

    The fact that we’re going to sign players with “Premier Experience” Infuriates me even more, because I genuinely think they’re going to absolutely god awful.

    But in my opinion I think we should just get used to it, he’s not gonna get sacked.

  • 36 Ginger // May 20, 2013 at 10:26 PM

    Abu Qatada – more popular in Europe (and lasted longer) than Pardew

    We’re gonna finish 15th 😉

  • 37 kevymartins // May 20, 2013 at 10:26 PM

  • 38 JackButler // May 20, 2013 at 10:27 PM

    hotdog

    the same negative crap every time you log on?

    After a season of breaking all the wrong records what do you expect???

    People happy that we face another season like this one?
    People happy that we face yet more lie’s and excuses?
    People happy that this chancer is still at the helm?

  • 39 Abu Qatada - more popular in Europe (and lasted longer) than Pardew // May 20, 2013 at 10:27 PM

    15th we best get to the shops to buy all the party poppers before they sell out……………15th dare we dream!!

  • 40 beefman13 // May 20, 2013 at 10:32 PM

    Hotdog, there is a reason why the same sort of negativity is spilling over on the blog, AP keeps coming out with these ridiculous statements, gold dust, getting over the line, top 4 finish this season, he has said them all, now its looking to a top 10 finish so he dosnt have to endure another Europa campaign, for which he totally spoiled it for me an I suspect a lot of others, still blaming it today, yet, we conceded 10 at home without reply in our last three home games after Europa was done and dusted, its a way of venting frustration at him on this blog, I have stuck up and constantly had a pop at posters having a go at MA over the last 4 y=ears, I hated the negativity to the core, but I have been turned inside out by this manager, he must have as I have mentioned earlier some sort of very special relationship with MA and DL to still be in this job, it is starting to really stink the whole situation, surely MA cannot be this thick to believe the Pardew bullshit.

  • 41 northernirishtoon // May 20, 2013 at 10:32 PM

    Prodigy

    A Carroll and Campbell partnership is right up Pardews street. It’s an old fashioned pairing for an old fashioned manager. It won’t bring continental football but it will play to our strengths as long as pardew is in charge

    The future of newcastle……….

    Would be right up my street!

  • 42 Mag.no // May 20, 2013 at 10:34 PM

    Ginger

    Now i suddenly agree with everything you’re writing :)
    I’ve been waiting for the “Pardew sacked” news since january. Again… i don’t want him to get sacked just to bring in a new average manager, so yes… perhaps we in some way have to get used to it just to protect our self. That’s pretty sad.

  • 43 Toon-Prodigy // May 20, 2013 at 10:36 PM

    I see all this hatred towards Pardew on here and I respect the opinions of others but..

    One thing is missing from all the negativity. The board don’t seem to be getting the same kind of hatred aimed towards them.

    The board have made two huge errors which has massively effected this season on a whole and put us under huge pressure.

    The first was not building the squad sufficiently last summer to compete with the extra games and injuries we would sustain. This mental gamble wrote our season off before January.

    The second was not signing an out and out striker in January to replace the goals Ba scored. If we had of lost Cisse to injury we would be down. We only had Shola and Campbell. They couldn’t of expected Gouffran to have the same effect Cisse did because he is not an out and out striker.

    Two massive gambles which has decimated our season. This hasn’t been in Pardews hands and should not be overlooked in my honest opinion.

  • 44 Toon-Prodigy // May 20, 2013 at 10:41 PM

    NorthernIrish,

    What about Cisse though? Bench him?

    I wonder where we would of finished the season if we had of secured Loic Remy and played Two up top from January.

    Because we did not have a plan B to bring in a top class forward we have suffered in the goals department. Or what about if Ba had not been sold I wonder where we would be.

    Huge Huge Mistakes by the board.

  • 45 Abu Qatada - more popular in Europe (and lasted longer) than Pardew // May 20, 2013 at 10:43 PM

    Mike Ashley isn’t stupid he can’t be to achieve all he has but football doesn’t really bode well with business management especially if you have a manager like Pardew. Not because Pardew is rubbish but because he’s a crap human being, he has no reaction to criticism because he knows it can’t be aimed at him! to that end he will never improve. Also the fact that any team playing long ball football very rarely achieves more that a 40% win rate in a season you never really get any success to bolster the coffers or support. NUFC got very lucky that some man got so struck with guilt about a team they destroyed he decide to give a silly £35m for an average Strike Her!! and the truth is we have been living out of that ever since. Mike Ashley has a decent plan but the wrong people around him, the Arsenal plan being the closest but Pardew can’t acheive what Wenger has because he’s pooooo. That said if they did all learn from this and improved I’d certainly be willing to forgive, and that goes for the players too, they have been less than average. The fact is you can’t keep doing the same thing week in/week out and expect different outcomes.

  • 46 tom68 // May 20, 2013 at 10:47 PM

    Toon-prodigy

    You’re spot on mate. I want Pards out badly but he has been siht on from a great height by our glorious leaders.

    I don’t agree with much sack llambidas says but he has the name spot on. We badly need a footballing MD if Ashley is staying at this club. If I had a wish he would be the first one out the door.

    Followed shortly by Pardew of course.

  • 47 northernirishtoon // May 20, 2013 at 10:49 PM

    Prodigy

    Just the thought of two Geordie strikers up front is maybe pushing it too far. It would be great though if we became successful with those two up front.

    As for cisse, he’d be playing right wing of course

  • 48 Harley // May 20, 2013 at 10:52 PM

    Here’s a question.

    Assuming the club are going to treat us to a striker and a winger to add to our squad (lets say PEA and weiman) and then replace anyone who leaves and assuming coloccini stays.

    Would everyone accept losing 1or 2 big guns to bring in a few more quality additions?

    Say we could sell cabaye, cisse and santon for approx 45 mlllion. However replace them with the likes of lukaku, rose, Sinclair, mertens, McCarthy and sakho (not these exact players but players of that price and quality) would you find that advantageous?

    I would.

  • 49 beefman13 // May 20, 2013 at 10:53 PM

    Toon Prodigy, he only used Shola, Campbell got three 10/15 mins cameos were he hardly touched the ball, he was buzzing around all over the pitch but they did not feed the lad, he should have been on the last defender, he is brilliant there he really is, big daft shola got the nod every time over Campbell, yet AP comes out today and says we missed shola badly and his thrust, I could have brought my frosties up!

    Ba was one of the top scorers first half of the season, and Cisse netted 13 times and 8 was it offside goals scratches off, shola did he get ONE or something, why did he not try a chomping at the bit Adam Campbell instead of shola at least some of the time he did not once when shola was a sub, total senioity advantage for shola, of course folk will say Campbell did not show much but his numpty teammates kept passing to their clicks.

  • 50 toonarmydownsouth // May 20, 2013 at 10:55 PM

    Prodigy@43
    I’ve been arguing that point all day, in fact some who wanted pardew out so badly were praising MA! Baffling……

    So every point is gold dust? Rare and hard to come by???? 😉

  • 51 toonarmydownsouth // May 20, 2013 at 10:57 PM

    Harley
    If we sold HBA cisse and tiote and bought in the type of players your talking about I could live with that tbh

  • 52 jonobbad // May 20, 2013 at 10:57 PM

    Tads – from previous post
    So you would be happy to pay the cab fare for tiote and cisse for having poor seasons, after good seasons last year but even though the same applies for pardew, you want to give him another chance?
    In my book thats hypocritical.
    And to be fair pardew has not shown anything to say it will get better.
    Pardew and all his lover boys out!

  • 53 t00ntime // May 20, 2013 at 11:00 PM

    tbf this is the first time i’ve heard him mention the fact that we come out bad in the 2nd half. maybe he is finally learning and will realise mistakes he has made. Thats our best hope becuase he is here next season 90% sure

  • 54 Toon-Prodigy // May 20, 2013 at 11:00 PM

    Tom68,

    Aye. You know, there is a great deal that needs to be put right at the moment, maybe Pardew is one of them, maybe not, we will know by Christmas.

    Im tired of this board making error after error though. They have missed a huge opportunity to take this club forward though and it’s soul destroying to think about.

    Instead of pushing on, they take gambles and put the club under pressure, it’s ridiculous really. Buffing the squad last summer would of been alot easier than the season we have suffered. Pardew has taken the sh1t, but these two have a lot to answer for aswell.

    Northern Irish,

    Sounds like a dream.

    “As for cisse, he’d be playing right wing of course”.

    Ahhh, hahahahaha! Don’t! My ribs man 😉

  • 55 Harley // May 20, 2013 at 11:04 PM

    Tads

    I’d go for those too. I just think we wouldn’t get that much for tiote and hba now to warrant selling them.

    I actually think the plan was to replace tiote at the end of this season with sissokho but tiotes loss if form has put pay to that.

  • 56 Ginger // May 20, 2013 at 11:06 PM

    Mag.no

    Ahahaha, I thought you would. To be honest I think I’m at the stage where I’d actually rather have an average manager. Don’t get me wrong, he may be just as defensive as Pardew and just as good in general.

    But at least he won’t say some of the things that Pardew does. I was absolutely mind blown when he was practically slating the Europa League and glad he wasn’t in it and stuff like that. I absolutely loved being in the Europa League. That’s kind of what blew it for me.

    Because at least an another average manager would want to be in Europe.

  • 57 toonarmydownsouth // May 20, 2013 at 11:07 PM

    Jonobbad
    When did I say I wanted pardew here next season? I’ve constantly said I would welcome a new manager BUT I don’t think we will get one so just get on with it
    How is that hypocritical or how does that make me a pardew lover boy?
    Do you really think the board will spend big on a top manager? No
    Will he sell some of our ‘purple’ players before there stock drops? Yes
    Big big big difference
    By all means feel free to start a debate but if your bored and trolling for a barney don’t bother

  • 58 Toon-Prodigy // May 20, 2013 at 11:11 PM

    Beefman,

    I’v got to be honest. I wouldn’t of touched Campbell this season or gave him any game time. It’s been a nasty season to introduce anyone of that age and inexperience. That took balls for me, but looking, Shola has been injured and so has Gouffran so we had no one else really did we? At least he has faith in the young lad, one for the future. Think we will see alot more of him next season.

    As for Shola, he will be off or retire. Can’t see him getting a game next season if im honest. Not with these strikers coming in.

    That’s how thin the board have left us in the striker department. Cisse, Shola and Campbell. And then bring Gouffran in.

    Tads,

    Aye, the blame for me is from the top to bottom. Ridiculous gambles eh?

    We are the people that has to suffer it all. Madness.

  • 59 tom68 // May 20, 2013 at 11:14 PM

    I think it was transfer sage who was talking the other day about transfer timing. When the likes is Spurs sell a top player for big money they immediately invest it straight back into the side.

    Unfortunately we faff about so much as the 2 year wait for c/b and striker show. If it’s true that Graham Carr has a list of players he recommends for each position then I can’t understand why it takes them so long to act.

    If it is purely for financial reasons then that is criminal and nothing short of negligence.

  • 60 toonarmydownsouth // May 20, 2013 at 11:22 PM

    Too true mate
    Even in jan although we got 5 players in it was only after we got shown up by reading and norwich(?) those games were a huge opportunity to get a massive six points and if we got the players we needed straight away it could of given us the boost we needed to get them

  • 61 jimmysmith // May 20, 2013 at 11:24 PM

    Campbell, like Sammi Ameobi, Fergie, Vuckic etal, an endless list really, are unlikely to make it at Newcastle. They deserve their chances, when they’ve earned them and they need to then seize their chance, when it comes, but to suggest any young player should be preferred from the bench in a tight relegation battle over a proven pro like Shola is tenuous at best.

    Shola has his strengths and weaknesses we all know that, but Campbell in those circumstances? I’m afraid I’m with Pards there, but mostly I wonder why we allowed ourselves to be in that position anyway.

  • 62 Toon-Prodigy // May 20, 2013 at 11:24 PM

    Tom68,

    I think it’s all to do with wages. He wants this club to run self sufficiently and that is why we are going to France for players on cheaper wages.

    I think we do have the money, the wages though play a huge part in who we bring to the club. They won’t go over the cap they have set.

    This is the plan we all have to adhere to unfortunetly.

    I just wish they would take a little risk now and again.

    This season has been absolute turmoil. It’s made my eyes bleed.

    Here we go ……………..already Pardew is telling us “points will be like gold dust”

    This man is already settling for survival next season

    There must be somebody better than Pardew who wants the job at NUFC

    I’ve said it before …….. Bollocks !!

    Jimmysmith,

    Exactly mate. With a bit of forward planning we should never of been in such a situation.

    The whole season has been structured wrong, terrible mistakes have been made that should not be happening at a Premier League football club.

    The worst thing is not being stuck with Pardew but Ashley. Manager can be sacked but we can’t change the type of managers Ashley wants to work with.

    Tads
    Multiple posts you stick up for him unnecessarily. I just think by that argument with tiote and cisse you must apply that to pardew.
    And the pardew lover boy remark was in general to everybody at the end of the post. TidThey know who they are.

    There are definately better managers out there, lets face it there are 18 better managers in the prem alone (Im not saying we can have them all), but pardew could not get a job in the prem off anyone until his casino mate him a favour.
    Then on the back of a solitary 5th place even though all of our eyes can see the sh1t in front of them.
    However the most important person, the manager, either cannot see It or dont know how to improve it.
    Either way there is not one reason he should stay. He is below our level in every way and we deserve better.
    Pardew has lost my faith and respect and I hope to god he is gone very soon.
    I actually dont think he will which is why im so pissed. I wouldnt p1ss on him if he was on fire
